HB845 by Olivo (Relating to training of school district peace officers and security personnel in certain discipline management practices and behavior management techniques.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
This bill would require school resource officers, peace officers, and security personnel to receive appropriate training related to student restraint and time-out procedures for students with disabilities. Current law requires school districts to provide training specified by commissioner of education rules to staff who may have interaction with special education students. The Texas Education Agency indicates that online training modules are available free of charge that meet significant portions of the training currently required under commissioner's rules.
